I began carving professionally in 1982 and my carvings can now be found in collections throughout the world. In 1985 I was Commissioned by Mr. Peter Huizenga to carve a complete set of the ducks of North America, which I finally completed in 2001. This involved carving a male and female of each of 29 species of waterfowl.
Peter added a room to his home primarily to house this collection. Internet sales continue to increase while brick and mortar retail sales are decreasing.Every item listed was designed and entirely hand made and painted by me. Any comments you have would be appreciated and if you have something special in mind, I will accept commissions provided I feel I have adequate knowledge and ability to successfully complete the project. Thank you for your time! This lifesize carving of a drake Wood Duck measures approximately 12" in length and 5.5" wide. It was completely hand carved, from white cedar, cut in half and hollowed out with hand gouges to a thickness of approximately 1/4and a weight of only 11.5 ounces!
